Subject: Parks in 1938
Its interesting to think of the historical context of this video. 1938 was not too long after the crash and people were not completely out of the depression yet. Also, war was starting with Japan and Germany. It seems like parks were being promoted as therapy for troubling times. It makes me want to visit a park now!

Subject: Too bad it wasn't in color.
Produced by the U.S Department of the Interior (not Agriculture)This 1938 film about the state parks in Minnesota was well done. Too bad it wasn't photographed in color. I found the cars and people's outfit of that era interesting.

Subject: Uncoscious for this film however.
Quite similar in style to, if you can beleive it, Brandon, Park Conxcious involves a narrator that doesnt really go beyond "parks are good" while having delirious classical music pipe in during the (long) gaps when he is not talking. The images we see are just various people frolicking in of course, parks. Not bad for the iomages, but everything else falls flat.

US Dept. of Interior distributed this film praising Minnesota's state parks developed under the New Deal with idylic summer woodlands and lake front scenes. Nice scenery.
